Module 3 – Case
UTILITY ETHICS AND CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Business Ethics are moral standards of conduct expected of a business by society. Social Responsibility involves the philosophies, policies, procedures, and actions that have the primary goal of enhancing society. Let us apply the concepts.
Social Responsibility Success
Select an organization that is socially responsible. Locate and review several sources of information including its website to support your discussion on how it implements Social Responsibility.
Social Responsibility Fail
Select a second organization has added issues with social responsibility. Locate and review several sources of information including its website to support your discussion on how it implements Social Responsibility.
The two sections should be 1½ pages in length each, be well-researched, and contain no quotes. Advanced critical thinking skills will be readily apparent in these sections of your Case Assignment.
Compare and contrast the two organizations. Present best practices and cautionary tales that came from your research that may affect other entities.
This section should be one page in length (with no quotes) and be supported by quality research.
Using articles primarily from the Trident Online Library’s full-text databases (such as Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, and/or ProQuest Central), research the chosen topic and create a well-balanced 3- to 3½-page submission that demonstrates evidence of critical thinking. Remember that this means your paper should not be just a summary of the articles and book chapters that you read, but rather an in-depth analysis that is supported by quality, graduate-level research.
Do not use any quotations. Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference the sources in APA format. The paper should be written in the third person; this means words like “I”, “we,” and “you” are not appropriate. For more information see Differences Between First and Third Person.
Use the attached APA-formatted template (ETH501 Case3) to create your submission.
Your submission will include:
- Trident University International’s cover page
- A 3- to 3½-page paper with APA citations (2- to 3-sentence introduction, body)
- The reference list page in APA format
